AJE Earring Challenge Weeks 25 & 26

Boy how the weeks fly by!  It's time once again for the bi-weekly AJE Earring Challenge reveal.

This time, one of my pairs is doing double duty.  If you follow my blog regularly you probably saw this first pair last Sunday when I shared it for the AJE Component of the Month blog hop.  Sorry for the repetition!  They feature Jenny Davies-Reazor's cute little ceramic charms along with china variscite, apple jasper and copper.

Week 25: Charms by Jenny Davies-Reazor

My second pair is beach inspired.  Once again, I'm using lampwork glass from Tanya McGuire.  These are actually a recent purchases as opposed to all the beads I've been pulling out of my hoard lately!  Anyway, I kept them fairly simple and just did some basic wire wraps and hung a little Vintaj brass sand dollar off the bottom of each earring.  I had hoped to do something for the July challenge over at the Vintaj blog, but I didn't get the time with all of my traveling (cry me a river, right?).  Anyway, I decided to do these in honor of that theme even though I didn't bother entering them.  The ivory based beads just made me think of sand.  This pair is for sale over in my Etsy shop, click HERE to see the listing and more pictures.

Week 26:  Lampwork glass by Tanya McGuire

I hope everyone is having a happy and safe Fourth of July weekend!  See you in two weeks for more earrings!


  1. Very pretty combinations, Sarajo... I especially admire asymmetrical design as I find it challenging myself and so rarely succeed at them!

  2. Love the mismatched pair so much!! The same but...different! :)

  3. Both pairs are beautiful! I just love the mismatched pair.

  4. The second pair are wonderful. I am a beach person!

  5. The mixmatched pair are really neat. And the texture of the lampwork is one of my favorites!!

  6. Thanks so much everyone! I'm so glad I was able to join the AJE Earring's been great fun so far and has really pushed me to stop hoarding and use those art beads!
